Banking Courses

Banks have become an essential part of society and it’s no wonder many individuals choose to pursue their education and career in the banking sector. Banking courses are available for those who are interested in becoming a part of, or are already part of the banking and financial services industry.

Banking courses can be taken as an undergraduate degree with some institutions offering multiple banking specializations through one degree program. The most popular undergraduate banking degree offered is the BSc (Hons) Banking and Finance. This course will normally take three to four years of full time study to complete. Banking courses generally cover modules including finance, accounting, statistics, bank management and operations and banking law.

Those students looking to study a postgraduate degree can opt to study a Master’s degree in Banking, or choose a more specialised degree such as MA Banking and Financial Services. This degree type usually takes one to two years of full time study to complete.

Entrance into an undergraduate degree program focusing on banking typically requires completion of secondary school with a minimum GPA set by the admitting institution. Alternatively, some business schools may require applicants to take an entrance exam or provide their scores from standard exams. Proficiency specifically in mathematics may be a consideration due to the course content. Other entry requirements may apply to international students including IELTS scores if English is not your first language. You are advised to contact the institution you wish to apply to for a full breakdown of entry requirements to their banking courses.
Throughout a banking course students will develop a wide range of skills to help them gain jobs as graduates. The main skills gained include analytical ability, numeracy proficiency and problem solving. The most popular banking graduate positions are in sales, trading, financial services operation and management, risk management and asset management.
